It was just a little 5.0 kilometer run, that’s all that it was, but oh what it meant to me.
It was the first time that I have run twice in three days since last March.
I’ve run intermittently since the Big Sur Marathon, but for the most part I have been trying to let this messed up knee and calf heal themselves.
Conditioning has been lost (passive voice). I finished the run this evening a good six minutes slower than my PR last October. That was humbling. On the plus side, it’s the fastest that I have finished a non-race situation since March. Is the glass half empty or half full?
I have a race I want to try to run on Labor day. It’s short (5.3 miles), but difficult bridge run. I know my legs can do it, I’m just not sure my lungs can.
More will be revealed I guess.
Take care and be great.
